After a big win in prime time, the Chicago Bears are certainly NOT out of the playoff picture just yet.  They pulled even with the Detroit Lions but still face an uphill climb to win the division and claim a playoff spot.  It’s not looking good, but there’s still a chance.  There’s no better time to at least start thinking about the NFL Draft.

Bowl season is just around the corner, which is a great time to do a little advanced scouting and start thinking about which players the Bears can select to fix their broken defense and restock the cupboard.  Our experts at FanSided’s mock draft site NFL Mocks have already been doing this homework for us and have made their selection for the Bears in their latest Mock Draft, currently sitting with the 16th pick in the draft.

    I would love to see them grab Clinton-Dix, the safety from Alabama, if he is still there. DL is a major issue, but they should be able to make it at least competent in FA and have some young talent there that they simply don’t in the secondary.

    • Big Swede

      I’ve seen 3 other Mock Drafts recently with the Bears taking Clinton-Dix in one, Ra’shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota in another, and OLB Khalil Mack, Buffalo in the third. Mack would round out the Bears Linebacker corps that could be a force for years to come. As the author notes above, if the D line retains Ratliff, Melton, Paea, and Collins, I think it would be more advisable to invest in some defensive backs.

      • Mike “Boomer” Burzawa

        Good insight. I don’t think it would be a stretch for the Bears to draft a DB either. With a lot of needs to fill, I don’t know if the Bears will be able to afford Melton and Collins. Besides, do you want to hinge another season on a couple of guys coming off ACL’s? If you can get them at a reduced price, maybe it’s a way to transition and bring some younger guys along. Wherever they choose, the Bears need to get a lot younger on defense.

    • Mike “Boomer” Burzawa

      I have seen Clinton-Dix come up a few times. I don’t know much about him, so I’ll have to do a little research on him. If you take a safety in the first round, he’d better be a Troy Polamalu or Earl Thomas type of difference maker. I agree the Bears need help at safety, but I also think that improving up front will help our safeties.

    Best Defensive player on the board. I can’t think of a position we don’t have a need , LOL
